Subject Time to start 4.1 planning?
Date Mon, 11 Nov 2013 08:32:57 GMT
Hi, all,
  It was one month since 4.0.1 release. And I noticed some some great works
are going to be delivered soon. e.g. the IA2 framework from Steve, the Mac
64-bit support from Herbert, and Windows Patch mechanism from Andre.

  So I'm thinking, is it a good time to start the 4.1 plan now? We should
deliver those great value to our users through a formal release ASAP! And
IMO, even only the 3 items above can be enough for a release to be called
4.1. We also want to do OOXML improvement by integrating OSBA patches, and
enhance user experience like in-place Input Field, and many other things...
While, I think we can keep the continuous improvement across releases. From
the record breaking download number since 4.0 and 4.0.1, I feel that
keeping regular release is very important to response to our users, attract
more new comers, and bring this product to success.

  So I suggest we start the 4.1 plan now, and set a target date. Since 4.0
was in July, 4.0.1 was in Oct, I feel some time in 1Q will be a good time
for 4.1.

  I suggest to update the 4.1 planning wiki[1] and:
(1) Set the target date.
(2) Clean up the planning list, starting from leaving only the active
items, and moving the rest to project backlog[2].

  Any suggestion/comments?
